About Me

As a dental practice owner for many years, I have always loved the challenge of running a business alongside the rewards of treating my patients, whilst maintaining a work-life balance raising my two lively sons!

I am absolutely passionate about Invisalign. Giving a person the confidence to smile after years of hiding their teeth, in an ethical and minimally invasive way is truly rewarding.

Being at the forefront of digital dentistry and integrating this into delivering world-class patient care is an exciting place to be.

Naturally, I love to share my passion with other dentists through teaching, speaking and study clubs.

"I lead a dedicated and talented team who change lives by creating beautiful smiles ethically, safely and with patients’ wellbeing at the heart of everything we do."

My Story

Following completing my Degree in Dentistry from Leeds University in 2001, I passed examinations to become a Member of the Joint Dental Faculties of the Royal College of Surgeons in 2005. I became the owner of a private dental practice in 2007, and following a two year fixed orthodontics course with renowned specialist Dr Jonathan Sandler I completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Clear Aligner Therapy, (pending) becoming the first Invisalign Full provider in Yorkshire with this qualification.

I regularly attend courses all over the world to keep at the forefront of the latest techniques and skills in Invisalign and cosmetic dentistry, and was recently privileged to be one of only 10 UK dentists to be invited to the Invisalign Summit in Las Vegas.

I am so grateful to the many mentors and teachers who have believed in me and helped me get to where I am. It is important to me to give back by encouraging and enabling other people to achieve their full potential, whether it be my patients, team members or the many talented women in dentistry. When I look back on my career I hope that this has been my greatest achievement
